Yowla (Arabic: اليولة / ALA-LC: al-yawlah) is traditional dance in the United Arab Emirates. It involves spinning and throwing a rifle dummy made entirely of wood and metal plating. Men dance to the rhythm and music by moving in a up and down step while constantly spinning, throwing and performing several tricks with the rifle. This type of dance requires great skill and concentration.
